Quick Quotes

"The first pitch of the game was a sinker away and from then on, I didn't have a feel for it. My off-speed pitches were pretty good, except for that one pitch hit for a home run. The leadoff double I didn't get it in far enough, I wasn't able to establish the inside part of the plate tonight. I didn't do a good job of putting myself in counts to be successful. That game's on me, for sure."

-Chase Anderson

"I've been working in the bullpens and doing pretty good in between [starts] but I've got to carry it into games. You don't last in this game very long if you don't go deep in the game as a starting pitcher. I've got to get better for sure."

-Chase Anderson

"I always said, 'What could I do if I could stay healthy?' It turns out I'd be 2-10 with a 5.00 (ERA). That's the (expletive) part. It's gone the opposite direction."

-Brandon McCarthy
